Level 7
Are you tired that Microsoft updates your bios to Asus' latest bios which is bugged? This is permanent solution to stop that enforcement. This modification simply replaces the efi version module from official 3.10 bios. Shortly, Windows will see your bios as 3.10.

If you don't know the risks of bios modifying, stay away from this guide. There are other ways to block that bios update.
1-Bios password (it's disturbing for home user. everytime will need password to enter bios or boot menu)
2-wushowhide.diagcab (must be repeated everytime on fresh windows install)

This guide is just for GL702VM. It can be used as a reference for other laptops/mainboards. Do your own researchs and take your own risks!
